When I commit, I commit hard.
When I say I will do something, I throw my whole self into it.
When I set a goal, I will reach it or die trying.
When someone tells me “You can’t“, I will prove them wrong with every ounce of my being.
When I find a new
love obsession in life, it consumes me… and I let it.
The word “balance” has never had a very strong presence in my vocabulary, and this needs to change….
I tend to throw myself “all or nothing” into things– Crossfit, Running, Paleo Diet, School, etc– and I have to remember that none of these things individually should dictate my mood/happiness in life! Even this Blog. I am less than 3 week in, and I find myself diverted from all school work and instead checking/reading/editing Morning Runner Girl and others.
For athletics, this mindset has made me a powerful runner and competitor. In school it has gotten me good grades, merit aid, and recognition. But when it comes down to it, this mindset can be overall unhealthy. I realize this and am actively working to change. And I can say that I have found improvement over the last few weeks!
All of your comments on my last post of Dealing With Inadequacy has left me feeling so blessed and hopeful! From time to time I write on my hand this little reminder that keeps me positive and looking forward!
